Cycling in Normandy
Bagnoles de l’Orne is one of the main staging points of the Véloscenie cycle race between Paris Notre-Dame and Mont Saint-Michel.
From short routes to intensive circuits, Bagnoles de l’Orne has all types of landscape and terrain. The Andaines forest, in particular, has 250 kilometres of tracks and marked-out trails, offering an infinite choice of routes for all ability levels, whether for mountain biking or bicycle touring. In addition, the low level of traffic in the area means you can develop your skills in a fully safe environment.
The valleys of the Andaines forest offer the ideal terrain to indulge in the joys of this very popular pastime. Nordic walking is both more intense than hiking and lower impact than running.
Nordic walking is gentle on joints and tones all the muscles of the body. It is accessible for all ages from 7 to over 77 – a pair of trainers and two poles is all the equipment you need.
Take your first steps in Nordic walking with one of the coaches at b’o resort, and then go for it – more than 280 km of marked trails await you!
With its gentle undulations, the Andaines forest is the perfect setting for runners of all levels. In Bagnoles de l’Orne, running is a deeply embedded tradition.
The runners also appreciate the therapeutic virtues of the Bagnoles de l’Orne thermal water, which regulates blood circulation, ideal for leg recovery after the hard work and effort. Special leg treatments are available at the b’o thermal spa during your stay at the b’o cottage****.
New : Bagnoles de l’Orne is now a trail running resort. More information:
